    Default The Most Interesting Thing in the Universe

    I couldn't help but make the title a little click-baity.

    To you, what do you think the most interesting thing is in the universe? I'm talking about celestial bodies here. So, a particular star, galaxy, planet, black hole, comet, asteroids, supercluster. That sort of thing.

    Provide a link and explain why. Discuss.

    It's difficult to pick just one, but I have to go with ESO 146-5(link) due to it's scale.

    ESO 145-6 is the largest galaxy known. It's 1.4 billion light years away. It's technically several galaxies in a cluster, but are believed to be undergoing a merging event, and are all closely gravitationally bound. It has a mass of 30 trillion solar masses- 300 times more massive than our milky way galaxy. Due to it's huge mass, it exibits incredible gravitational lensing. If you watch the video in the wikipedia link it shows this and really gives you a sense of how massive it is.

    Black holes are clearly the most abstract object in the universe. But saying "black hole" is very corny answer in my opinion.


    Therefore I will go with Neutron stars. Due to the fact that they have ultra high density/mass that can crush atoms, very very fast rotation speeds and can harm life from much much further away then a black hole. Not to mention that by adding mass they can turn into a black holes. For some reason I find them weirder than black holes, probably because everyone heard for various other types of objects in space while with neutron stars that doesn't seem to be the case.


    Just "google" there is plenty of info around.

    Pluto. Its very existence stirs up the shit and makes people think. Still.

    The monkeys and dogs we sent into outer space were put on the evolution fast track by the Ogopogo alien race. Those dogs and monkeys and their descendants are smarter than us now. They've got a really awesome space colony with water slides and ice cream growing on trees right beside bananas.

    I'm interested to know what is beyond Pluto.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.
